  • Low Rates of Preemptive Kidney Transplantation: A Root Cause Analysis to
           Identify Opportunities for Improvement

    • Authors: Mona Alsharani, Faisal Basonbul, Seychelle Yohanna
      Abstract: Background: Kidney transplantation success can help improve the quality of life substantially and alleviate much of the physical, social and psychological stress that comes with dialysis lifestyle. Preemptive kidney transplantation has been established to be superior with more success rates than other means of transplantation types. However, low rates of this method need more attention to address the reason and tackle the root causes affecting low preemptive kidney transplantation.Methods: This study was undertaken at a tertiary care academic hospital. We conducted a retrospective chart review of 50 living donor kidney transplants (recipient and donor charts) between January 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018 and performed a root cause analysis on the module. A three-step algorithm was developed to divide the root cause of all preemptive kidney transplantation.Results: Out of 50 patients included, only 11 (22%) achieved a successful preemptive kidney transplantation. Furthermore, an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 15 - 20 was a significant factor in achieving preemptive kidney transplantation (P = 0.042). Meanwhile, 22 recipients started dialysis before transplant and was a major cause of not achieving the preemptive transplantation despite them achieving the status. Moreover, the most common recipient root cause was incidental medical issues in 10 cases (20%) while in donor factors, the most common root cause was the delay in evaluating multiple donors to achieve the preemptive status (20%).Conclusion: Even though preemptive kidney transplantation is superior when compared to other modalities, achieving such a milestone is still considered very challenging. An eGFR of 15 - 20 was a significant factor in achieving preemptive kidney transplantation, while pre-transplant dialysis was a major cause of not achieving it. Further large-scale studies are needed to identify new factors as well as validate our findings.

  • Percentage of Hormone Receptor Positivity in Breast Cancer Provides
           Prognostic Value: A Single-Institute Study

    • Authors: Richard Sleightholm, Beth K. Neilsen, Safwan Elkhatib, Laura Flores, Saihari Dukkipati, Runze Zhao, Songita Choudhury, Bret Gardner, Joey Carmichael, Lynette Smith, Nathan Bennion, Andrew Wahl, Michael Baine
      Abstract: Background: A majority of breast cancer tumors express estrogen receptor (ER) and/or progesterone receptor (PR); however, the percentage of cancer cells expressing these receptors can range from 0-100%. The prognostic and therapeutic impact of the percentage of cells expressing hormone receptors in breast cancer is not fully understood.Methods: A retrospective analysis of 411 breast cancer patients who were treated at the University of Nebraska Medical Center between 2010 and 2017 was performed. Patient tumors were evaluated for percentage of cells expressing ER and PR in conjunction with clinical outcomes.Results: Patient tumors demonstrated a highly bimodal pattern of ER and PR staining with a majority of tumors demonstrating either a high percentage (> 80% of cells) or lack of cells (0%) staining for ER or PR. An increase in the percentage of ER positivity correlated with decreased local recurrence and improved overall survival. An increase in the percentage of PR positivity demonstrated a trend towards decreased local recurrence and improved overall survival, but was not statistically significant.Conclusions: Results based on both continuous and categorical evaluation of ER expression revealed that increasing expression correlated with improved patient outcomes. Similar evaluation of PR expression demonstrated a trend towards improved patient outcomes though not statistically significant. These findings suggest that the degree of hormone receptor positivity and not a Boolean representation of positivity could provide additional prognostic value in the treatment and management of breast cancer.

  • Pediatric Care Struggles of US Trained International Medical Graduate
           Pediatricians in COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Deepa Vasireddy, Srikrishna Varun Malayala, Paavani Atluri, Deepika Gupta
      Abstract: Background: Pediatrician shortage and healthcare access has been a serious issue especially in medically underserved and rural areas aplenty in the USA and has further worsened during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Many US trained international medical graduates (IMGs) on a visa status serve these areas to fill in the physician gap. These physicians are usually on a visa and the majority of them have approved immigration petitions. During this pandemic, the sudden changes in immigration policies in addition to the longstanding administrative backlog and processing times had posed new challenges to the pediatricians and the communities served by them. The objective of this study was to determine the demographics, level of training and practice, immigration status, the clinical role they played in the communities they served and the various professional and personal setbacks they faced during the pandemic.Methods: A survey was created and data were collected using data collection platform “Survey Monkey”. Screening questions were designed to include only IMG pediatricians on a visa status.Results: A total of 267 IMG pediatricians qualified for the survey on a nationwide basis. Of the physicians that participated in the survey, 58.4% were working in either medically underserved or physician shortage areas, 36% of the total physicians were working in a rural setting, 10.6% of the pediatricians had to be quarantined due to exposure to COVID-19, 0.8% were infected with COVID-19 themselves, and 81.3% of the pediatricians had faced hindrance in being able to work at a COVID-19 hotspot due to work site restrictions because of their visa status.Conclusion: IMG pediatricians play a valuable role in taking care of the children in medically underserved areas. The challenges surrounding the immigration backlog are contributing to significant hardships for these pediatricians and their families and are causing a hindrance to healthcare access to the children in medically underserved communities during the pandemic especially limiting the pediatricians’ scope and geographic radius of the practice, thus not allowing them to practice to the full extent of their license.

      Abstract: Background: Approximately 19% of people infected with the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) progress to severe or critical stages of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with a mortality rate exceeding 50%. We aimed to examine the characteristics, mortality rates, intubation rate, and length of stay (LOS) of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 disease with high oxygen requirements (critically ill).Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis in a single center in Brooklyn, New York. Adult hospitalized patients with confirmed COVID-19 disease and high oxygen requirements were included. We performed multivariate logistic regression analyses for statistically significant variables to reduce any confounding.Results: A total of 398 patients were identified between March 19th and April 25th, 2020 who met the inclusion criteria, of which 247 (62.1%) required intubation. The overall mortality rate in our study was 57.3% (n = 228). The mean hospital LOS was 19.1 ± 17.4 days. Patients who survived to hospital discharge had a longer mean LOS compared to those who died during hospitalization (25.4 ± 22.03 days versus10.7 ± 1.74 days). In the multivariate analysis, increased age, intubation and increased lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) were each independently associated with increased odds of mortality. Diarrhea was associated with decreased mortality (OR 0.4; CI 0.16, 0.99). Obesity and use of vasopressors were each independently associated with increased intubation.Conclusions: In patients with COVID-19 disease and high oxygen requirements, advanced age, intubation, and higher LDH levels were associated with increased mortality, while diarrhea was associated with decreased mortality. Gender, diabetes, and hypertension did not have any association with mortality or length of hospital stay.

  • Survival Benefit of Aspirin in Patients With Congestive Heart Failure: A

    • Authors: Sania Jiwani, Usman Mustafa, Sapna Desai, Paari Dominic
      Abstract: Background: There is no clear consensus on the use of aspirin (ASA) in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) due to its reported interaction with other cardio-prudent medications. The aim was to evaluate the effect of ASA on all-cause mortality and the frequency of hospitalization for heart failure in patients with CHF using meta-analysis, as well as to study the potential variables interacting with this effect.Methods: Eligible studies were identified via a PubMed search, the “related article” feature and a manual search of references. Studies were included if they had a study population with CHF of any etiology, compared ASA to no ASA or placebo, and reported one or both of the following outcomes: 1) all-cause mortality and 2) the frequency of hospitalization for heart failure. Data were extracted and verified. We used the inverse variance method in a random-effects model to combine effect sizes.Results: A total of 14 studies with a combined study population of 64,550 patients were included in the final analysis. All-cause mortality was found to be significantly lower in patients who were taking ASA (P = 0.003). When examining the use of ASA, no significant difference was found in the frequency of hospitalization for heart failure. ASA use was demonstrated to be more beneficial against mortality in studies with a larger percentage of patients on nitrates (P = 0.008) and oral anticoagulants (P = 0.04). A significantly lower rate of hospitalization for heart failure was observed in patients who used oral anticoagulants and ASA concurrently (P = 0.02).Conclusions: ASA may have beneficial effects on mortality in patients with heart failure of all etiologies.

  • Optimal Upper Limits of Plateau Pressure for Patients With Acute
           Respiratory Distress Syndrome During the First Seven Days: A
           Meta-Regression Analysis

    • Authors: Hideto Yasuda, Masamitsu Sanui, Tetsuro Nishimura, Tetsuro Kamo, Eishu Nango, Takayuki Abe, Rachel Roberts, Toru Takebayashi, Satoru Hashimoto, Alan Kawarai Lefor
      Abstract: Background: The effects of plateau pressure during the initial days of mechanical ventilation on outcomes for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome have not been fully examined. We conducted meta-regression analysis of plateau pressure during the first 7 days using randomized control trials to investigate the optimal upper limits of plateau pressure on different days of mechanical ventilation.Methods: Randomized controlled trials comparing two mechanical ventilation strategies with lower and higher plateau pressures in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome were included. Meta-regression analysis was performed to determine the association of plateau pressure with mortality on days 1, 3, and 7 of mechanical ventilation.Results: After evaluation of 2,975 citations from a comprehensive search across electronic databases, 14 studies were included in the final qualitative analysis. A total of 4,984 patients were included in the quantitative analysis. As a result of the pairwise comparison, overall short-term mortality was significantly higher for patients with plateau pressures over 32 cm H2O during the first 3 days after intensive care unit (ICU) admission (day 1: relative risk (RR), 0.77; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.66 - 0.89; I2 = 0%; day 3: RR, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.64 - 0.90; I2 = 0%), but not on day 7 (RR, 0.82; 95% CI, 0.65 - 1.04; I2 = 16%). Plateau pressures below 27 cm H2O and 30 cm H2O were not associated with an absolute risk reduction of short-term mortality. According to univariable meta-regression analysis, mortality was significantly associated with plateau pressure on day 1 (β = 0.01 (95% CI, 0.002 - 0.024), P = 0.02). On days 3 and 7, however, no significant difference was detected. When the cutoffs were set at 27, 30 and 32 cm H2O on day 1, which showed a significant difference, plateau pressure tended to be associated with increased mortality at pressures above the cut-off values, and there were no significant differences at pressures below the cut-off values, regardless of the cutoff used.Conclusions: This study suggests that the optimal cut-off value for plateau pressure may be 27 cm H2O especially during the initial period of mechanical ventilation, although this association may not continue during the latter period of mechanical ventilation.

  • Correlation of Immunoglobulins and Lymphocytes Levels With the Clinical
           and Microbiological Response of Septic Patients With Gram-Negative

    • Authors: Diamanto Aretha, Katerina Leukaditou, Fotini Fligou, Karolina Akinosoglou, Alexandros Spyridonidis, Alexandra Nikolopoulou, Stelios F. Assimakopoulos
      Abstract: Background: Immunoglobulins (Igs) and cells of the innate and adaptive immune systems play a critical role in a host’s response to sepsis. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible differences in the levels of Igs, white blood cells (WBCs), and T and B lymphocytes cells in relation to the microbiological and clinical responses of patients with sepsis or septic shock from carbapenem non-susceptible Gram-negative bacteria (CnS-GNB).Methods: This pilot cohort study involved 24 hospitalized patients with sepsis or septic shock due to bacteremia from CnS-GNB. The microbiological and clinical responses of the patients were evaluated in relation to their blood levels of IgA, IgE, IgM and IgG, as well as WBCs and subpopulations of T and B cells upon sepsis diagnosis. A microbiological response was determined as clearance of bacteremia at 14 days of active antibiotic treatment for the isolated bacterial pathogen. Clinical response was defined as the resolution of all clinical and laboratory signs of infection and sepsis at 14 days of active antibiotic treatment for the isolated pathogen.Results: From the 24 patients included in the study 18 (75%) and six patients (25%) presented and did not present microbiological response respectively, while 16 patients presented clinical response (64%) and eight patients (36%) did not have clinical response. The levels of the Igs did not show statistically significant differences between patients with sepsis from CnS-GNB bacteremia who exhibited microbiological or clinical response. There were also no statistically significant differences in the levels of WBCs and the subpopulations of T and B cells levels for these patients (P > 0.05). According to this pilot study, peripheral blood Igs and lymphocyte subpopulations levels do not affect the clinical and microbiological response of septic patients with bacteremia from CnS-GNB.Conclusions: In patients with sepsis or septic shock from CnSGNB, there were no differences in the levels of Igs, circulating WBCs and T and B cells subpopulations between those with microbiological or clinical response and non-responders.
